January update

Thanks, all!  Invoices are now out and packages will go into the mail on Tuesday.  The sold yarn is shown in strike-through font, but there are still a few things available; if one of them catches your fancy, just shoot me an email and I’ll get back to you shortly.

Hello from beautiful (but grey) New Brunswick!  Today’s update features merino/ silk DK hat sets (33g gradients + 50g Straights) and sock sets (pairs of 50g merino/ nylon gradients).  There are also some oddballs or trial bases, each priced as per the photo captions.

Remember that colours vary from device to device; I always include a written description of how I see the colour, but please do ask if you’re uncertain about a particular cake or skein.

To claim some yarn, email me at gobsmackedyarn@gmail.com.  An update can get pretty wild on my end, but I promise I’ll respond to your email to let you know if you got your choices.  I’ll send out PayPal invoices about an hour after the update starts, once things start to quiet down a bit; please note that invoices are due upon receipt (with a little leeway for different time zones and schedules).

Shipping for paid orders will happen on Tuesday 28 January.
